I am new to Python and am learning how to program using Notepad++ but keep seeing the indentation error, "Unindent does not match any outer indentation level" whenever I try to indent. How do I fix this?

There should be a line number with the error. There is probably a line of code where, for example, three spaces are used instead of four (or whatever spacing/indentation scheme you're using). Ex:

if x === 5:
    print "true"
     print "this line has incorrect indentation"
    print "some more text"

Or, alternatively, there might be tabs mixed in with spaces. They might look identically (for example, one tab is generally the size of four spaces), but may cause the error to be thrown. Or there could be some strange, non-standard fake space character mixed in that is not actually a space.
